"THe whole interview experience was really good. I reached 2 days before te intrvw.The day b4 te intrvw, went to the Univ. and asked te front desk person, to show me te room , where my intervw was to be held te nxt day.He was very kind enuf to guide us ter.Afterwards , got a chance to meet 2 senior PASS students , n got to talk with tem , tey were very kind enuf to stop n answer all our queries.Next day mroning , reached arnd 730am itself, n was too early I guess, slowly interviewees started comin in , n totally we were 8 , we wer taken to te room. We waited till 9, and ten Dr.Lopen came in, it seems te projector wasnt working for soem reason, ten she started asking us qstns abt Philly. Later it started working n after tis session , Dr.Uri Hangorsky came in to give a speech abt te Clinical Side @ UPENN , wich was very interesting.Followed by a speech on how to apply for loans, once accepted by Dr.Lopez, and one-on-one intrvws soon followed. All of us were interviewd by 3 faculties-Dr.Lopez,Dr.Hangorsky and te 3rd one differed for each one , I guess.. atleast for me ,, te name changed from wot was printed on my schedule . Mine took so long, since tey cudnt fidn a replacement for te name printed on my schdeule ,. so i had to wait without having te lunch . ie till 2pm , for my intervw to get over , meanwhile te enthusiastic senior (who was supposed to have lunch wit us n give us tour guide ) had already started her lunch n had to show us arond te school . Poor me, had to sit n wait till I received te call @ 2pm, te time wen we had to start te school tour. but te senior student was kind enuf to wait. Last interview went well.. she dint ask me anything , I had to tell her everything abt me. Thats it. Collected names of te interviewers to send a Thank you NOte to tem.tats it , done .
